Well, I am well and truly back to work, with long days. Don't know where the time is going, which is a good thing really, as there is nothing worse than being at work and having nothing to do!
I finished sewing my scrappy stars from a long time ago:
I think I will be giving this one away. My dad and step mum live next door to a lady called Joan. She is 82 and often tries to drink us all under the table when we go up there. She is such a lovely lady
|That's Joan, in the hat, on the right. Lovely hot lunch time and we are drinking bubbly|
I want to get this finished for her so that she has something to throw over her in the evenings
I have been doing some EPP in the evenings:
and a Christmas one (!!!)
I have not done any more on my wedding ring as I have ordered some scrap bundles from pink castle fabrics scrap pack. I wanted to add some materials that I don't have as my scraps as starting to repeat. I have something to pick up from the post office and I think that is my scraps. Can't wait!
ooh! I like your stars... I am sure Joan will love it xxReplyDelete
The stars look terrific. Make sure she doesn't spill any drinks on it though!ReplyDelete
I like the sound of that old lady!ReplyDelete
What a lovely gift for your drinking buddy! JxoReplyDelete
A great gift idea! Such cool EPP work =DReplyDelete
The stars will make a really lovely gift for Joan. The EPP is nice too. I am looking forward to seeing your wedding rings grow. I never realised how small the individual pieces were until you showed me. Good thing that there are dark winter nights ahead - plenty of sewing time! Di xReplyDelete
I love the sound of Joan and the star quilt will be perfect for her. Off to look at those scrap packs now although I had a bit of a splurge there yesterday!ReplyDelete
lol -you have to watch them little old ladies!!! your EPP project is gorgeousReplyDelete
love your scrappy stars and EPP! I need to get back to some rose stars I reckon just got too much going on! life gets in the way of sewing sometimes boooo!ReplyDelete
I love the scrappy stars!!!ReplyDelete
Fabulous Scrappy Stars! Great pressie.ReplyDelete
That scrappy stars quilt will make a great pressie!ReplyDelete
Somehow it sounds like Joan is a budgie! Throw a quilt over her, she will go to sleep, and stop drinking you under the table! Sorry- just the way my mind works... Or doesn't.ReplyDelete
she sounds fun.
